Construction Watch: 5-7 Genesee Street

One of downtown’s largest smaller projects is projected to be finished this summer. The former Texas Red Hots at 5-7 Genesee Street is getting a new looks, three new apartments and a restaurant tenant. Architect Steve Carmina is working with Roger Trettel, a pioneering downtown developer with other properties on the 500 block; Steven A. Carmina, an accountant; and Joe Piccone, owner of Bison Electrical Services, on the project. St. Laurence Restoration Co. is construction manager for the work that was designed by Carmina Wood Morris, of course.




The project was recently awarded a $25,000 grant from the New York Main Street program that is being administered by Buffalo Place.

Two, large two-story units, one with 1,350 sq.ft. the other with 1,650 sq.ft., are planned on the upper floors along with a one-bedroom, single-level unit with 745 sq.ft. Two of the units are spoken for and should be ready for occupancy in August. Martin Danilowicz of Martin Cooks will be opening a restaurant on the ground floor this summer. It is one of two big projects upcoming for Danilowicz and his team. More on that in a future post.
